Yet even an isolated copper mining town like attractive Mt. Isa boasts of ultramodern accommodations and first-class restaurants. If any one element tends to buffalo tourists, it’s distance often vaster and lonelier than our Western regions of “room and time enough.” But, with proper planning, this is easily overcome via quick flights on Trans Australia Airlines, which cover the continent, and regional operations like Connellan Airways and Lindeman Aerial Service that supplement the main air routes.

Sydney, of course, is the gateway whether via Pan American World Airways or the P & 0 and Matson Lines. With one of the globe’s most impressive harbor locations, it’s THE South Pacific fun city and perhaps that region’s most exciting in terms of people, sights, diversions, history, sports and culinary treats. Sydney is like New York, Chicago, New Orleans and San Francisco wrapped into a package with a distinctive Aussie flair that practically every visitor loves. The capital of Canberra is less than a half hour’s flight away. With a setting in which country and city are exquisitely blended, it’s one of the world’s most appealing capitals and has one of Australia’s best hotels: the Canberra Rex.

Melbourne is Australia’s Boston, a conservative financial hub where a day’s tour can mean anything from looking at parading penguins and bobbing kangaroos to the impressive Law Courts and University. It’s also the portal for trips to the island of Tasmania a scenic, historic-recreation gem with succulent local foods from apples and cheeses to crayfish and mushrooms. Tasmania loaded with pastoral scenes, winsome beaches, rugged mountains, former penal sites like picturesque Port Arthur, friendly people and heart-clutching cities such as Hobart is the most beautiful section of Australia. To stay more than a day in this often tourist-overlooked region is to want to stay forever. In South Australia, well-settled Adelaide makes a logical goal and a trip to the Barossa Valley wine country (some of the world’s best wines come from here) is a natural.

From Mackay, fly north to Cairns where the tropics really begin. Two lures, if Maintenance man to pilot His dream fly higher, faster By ARTHUR A. RILEY Staff Writer “My fondest dream is to be an astronaut. But I suppose that is the dream of most pilots … to fly at higher altitudes and greater speeds.” This was the expressed desire of Craig Flowers, Northeast Airlines’ first black pilot. The 26-year-old Bahamian, interviewed in Boston, revealed that he had worked his way up from a job as a maintenance man for Bahama Airways. Since his appointment as a first officer on Northeast’s flight staff last August, Flowers has been flying FH-227 aircraft between La Guardia Airport, New York and points on the carrier’s routes in northern New England. below.

More? Of course. All these targets merely hint of what awaits. For Australia is unique and proves it at every turn. Its people are among the world’s nicest even to complete strangers, He had high praise for Northeast captains. “They have been extremely nice,” he said, “and have gone out of their way to help me. I am so attached to flying that I look forward to it more than I do to recreational activities. Discussing air congestion in the New York area, Flowers said: “At first it seemed extremely strange to me to hold so long in the air traffic pattern, particularly so, with the company calling in and asking for an estimated landing time. Then you have to get on the public address system and talk to the passengers. But I’ve grown accustomed to this,” he added, “because you soon learn when the peak traffic hours occur and you quickly adjust to the situations.” A native of the Caribbean area where good weather is generally the order of the day, this is Craig’s first season making landings under icy or snowy runway conditions. “But with the help of able and experienced captainsI’ve increased my efficiency.” The lithe, tall and highly personable Flowers was first attracted to Northeast Airlines at a school in Miami where Northeast pilots re- MIAMI BEACH a.m. m our famed WRECK BAR.
